Moderate Conservative British Prime Minister Theresa May survived a no-confidence vote yesterday from the hard-Brexiteers in her own party. Out of the 317 Conservative MPs (Members of Parliament), 200 had confidence in her, with 117 not having confidence. Under her party rules, there cannot be another confidence vote for at least one year (December 12, 2019).
Since Theresa May's premiership began in July of 2016 (when David Cameron abandoned ship over Brexit), despite initially wishing to remain, she has been forced to solve the Brexit crisis. So far, the process of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union has been a rough road for May. She has negotiated a deal, but one that will never pass through Parliament. The U.K. Is currently scheduled to leave the E.U. on March 29, 2019, but complications may delay this. These include if a deal cannot be reached in Parliament by then, another referendum or general election.
The Prime Minister also signally she will not be leading her party in the next scheduled election in 2022.
